Why are most of us afraid of telling the truth?
Most of the time, people cannot tell what they think or what they really want to say.From my point of view, this is because they are afraid of being judged by other people.They start to think about other people’s opinion.This is where overthinking starts.Unfortunately, when people become overthinker, they begin to lose their identity and opinion.Most of them are not aware of how dangerous it is because other people direct their lives with unnecessary and empty thoughts.Why cannot we tell exactly what we really want to say?
People cannot find enough courage to tell what they want.I strongly believe that people who are always focused on what people say about them can have their personality and characters built on that and i think this is one of the most harmful habits.People always tend to judge each other according to what they think is acceptable.This is what makes expressing opinions and emotions much harder.
“If we are not ashamed to think it,we should not be ashamed to say it.” Marcus Cillius Cicero
“Integrity is telling myself the truth.And honest is telling the truth to other people.” Spencer Johnson
“The truth is always something that is told,not something that is known.If there was no speaking or writing, there would be no truth about anything.There would only be what is.” Susan Sontag
Overthinking causes stress which causes dangerous illnesses.This cycle is what destroys a human’s life.The fear,in most cases, is a reflection of our own insecurities and i think this is why most of the time people need a mask to tell the truth.We avoid telling the truth until we get a mask but judgement is unavoidable.I think to get rid of this problem, we should ask questions to ourselves about why we feel in that way and what scares us.We can solve the problem by asking this type of questions because they help us to reach the main reason of our fear.
